Aston & District W.I October 2018 Report
At our October afternoon meeting our President Jenny Bourne welcomed members and visitors and thanked everyone who came to our successful fundraising Fashion Show by Edinburgh Woollen Mill of Nantwich.
Our President then gave out information about forthcoming events, asking for volunteers who would like to take part in the County Quiz due to take place in February 2019.
Our walking group are meeting at The Old Hall at Sandbach on 10th October at 10.30 am.
On Tuesday 9th October the Luncheon Club are going to The Lord Combermere in Audlem at 12.00 noon for 12.30 pm.
Reminders and dates were given for the darts; scrabble, and invitations to our Christmas Party on 7th December were distributed to all members.
A warm welcome was given to our speaker for the afternoon, Mrs Natalie Kirkham. Her talk was entitled 'Eat for your life'. She spoke briefly of her qualifications in herbal medicine and nutritional therapy with a particular interest in patients suffering from IBS and Migraine.
She believes in identifying and then correcting the problems not just treating the symptoms. She took us through the 7 secrets of healthy eating which included all the food groups, water and spices. We were all able to identify at least one or two small changes in what we eat and how we eat and were comforted by the fact that she recommended we did not eat things we did not like just because someone tells us it's a healthy option.
Food for thought was: — can we eat 20 different foods in one day?
Judy Townsend gave the vote of thanks and the competition, which was a 'Healthy Recipe', was won by Glenys Inight.
Tea and lots of cake was served during the interval and enjoyed by all — despite the fact it probably wasn't the healthiest option!
The raffle was drawn as the meeting came to a close.
Our next meeting is on 2nd November at 2.00pm in the afternoon and will be the AGM, followed by our speaker, Mr. Roger Burgess "A Moment in Time"
New Members and Visitors are always welcome.
